Epworth United Methodist Church

Triangular light brown brick building with a middle panel displaying a large cross. A sign on the side reads "Physical distance, Spiritual Connection, You are not alone, EpworthMpls.org"

Location: Epworth United Methodist Church3207 37th Ave South 

This is a midcentury modern take on the A-frame school of architecture, built in 1965. In this church the large A provides a site for bright colors and religious symbolism; it almost appears as a billboard, drawing the eye to the building. In these days of social isolation, the message board shares a message of spiritual connection, assuring the bypasser that they are not alone, even in physical isolation.
